Photonex Europe Live! opens in Coventry tomorrow – Stand B10 for Elliot Scientific

Elliot Scientific returns to stand B10 at Photonex in Coventry tomorrow and Thursday, offering the chance to experience the quality of our internationally renowned Elliot|Martock range first hand.

Exported the world over, our XYZ flexure stages are used for alignment and fiber launch in research and production environments, while our portfolio of miniature translation and rotary stages are often incorporated into OEM products for the optical and semiconductor industries.

For the first time at Photonex we will have items from the Siskiyou catalogue, including their sought after IXF mirror mounts so you can discover how they deliver their exceptional pointing stability in thermally demanding situations.

Also new for 2018 are high speed lasers from IPG Photonics. Operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, these green and IR lasers are ideal for scientific and medical research.

Finally, life scientists love our Prizmatix ultra high power LED light sources, so we thought you might like to see them too.

Long-range Z-axis nanopositioning stage is especially designed to hold multiwell plates

The Mad City Labs‘ Nano-ZL Series are long range, Z-axis nanopositioners specifically designed to hold multiwell plates used in biomedical research. High-throughput single cell fluorescence microscopy and high speed, high resolution confocal imaging can be accomplished while simultaneously adjusting the Z-axis position to remove the effects of multiwell plate irregularities.

The Nano-ZL Series has true flexure guided motion and contains internal position sensing for a resolution of better than 1 nm over the full 500 µm travel range, and sub-nanometer for the shorter 100 µm travel range. In addition to high resolution spatial imaging, the Nano-ZL step response allows entire Z-section acquisitions with minimal photo bleaching. For more information, please contact us.

Seven Nanopositioning Elements from Mad City Labs

Elliot Scientific has expanded its coverage of Mad City Labs equipment available through the company by adding a dedicated webpage for the Nano-F series of focusing elements. The new page details Mad City Labs’ offerings for microscopists involved in 4Pi microscopy, STORM, PALM, confocal and fluorescence imaging, super resolution (SR) microscopy, high speed Z stack imaging and other applications requiring high speed focus adjustment:

  • Nano-F Series – Objective lens focusing elements with 100 µm or 200 µm of travel
  • Nano-F25HS – A high speed nanopositioner focusing element with 25 µm travel
  • Nano-F3D  – An objective lens nanopositioner with 3-axis (XYZ) motion up to 100 µm per axis
  • Nano-F450  – The longest travel range piezo focusing element available for research microscopy with 450 µm travel

These elements can be used as stand-alone systems, or in conjunction with other Mad City Labs nanopositioning stages, and feature quick mount threaded adapters for RMS and metric lens threads.

In addition, we have also added the following nanopositioning stages to existing pages within the dedicated Mad City Labs section of their website:

  • Nano-MTA Series – A range of mirror tip/tilt actuators for rapid scanning of laser beams with sub-microradian resolution
  • Nano-OPH Series – A large central aperture nanopositioning stage with ranges of motion from 30 up to 100 µm
  • Nano-SPM200 – A compact nanopositioning system with 200 µm travel

Nano-Cyte and MadPLL Systems added to our Mad City Labs’ Range

Elliot Scientific is now offering two recently introduced systems from leading nanopositioning experts Mad City Labs.

Nano-Cyte™LC is an image based, platform independent stabilisation system that changes the nature of live cell imaging. Suddenly, temperature gradients, sample and microscope drift are things of the past as the Nano-Cyte™LC system delivers unprecedented stability in the nanometer regime allowing long term imaging experiments like none before. [Video] [Brochure]

MadPLL® is a powerful instrument package that allows a user to create an inexpensive, high resolution resonant scanning probe microscope from Mad City Labs nanopositioning systems. In short, MadPLL® can be used to create an ‘instant’ closed loop AFM or NSOM at a fraction of the cost of commercial systems. MadPLL® is suitable for nanoscale characterisation and nanoscale fabrication applications such as optical antennas, nano-optics, semiconductors, data storage, and more. [Video] [Brochure]
